Earlier this year in June, Harvick posted highlights of his son’s first pole position in karting. He wrote, “Long week of racing but my favorite race of the week was Keelan’s first!!! Got his first pole ran all the laps and we had fun!! #62”

Keelan has been spotted in his dad’s car a couple of times over the last few years. And he has taken several rides in his father’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series cars during his victory celebrations.

As fate would have it, it looks like Harvick Jr. is well on his way to conquer the world of motorsports like his father.
